WRITING THE BREAKOUT NOVEL WORKBOOK, by DONALD MAASS, hands down, is one of the best books I’ve read on the craft of writing. Easy to read, with great examples and worksheets.
It’s not only a book that will help you develop your writing skills, but shows you how to write a bestseller, as well as get your proposal past the rejection pile.
A glimpse into what to expect in this amazing book:
· Building plot layers
· Creating inner conflict
· Strengthening voice and point of view
· Discovering and heightening larger-than-life character qualities
· Strengthening theme
· And much more!
I loved the detailed references to several bestselling authors’ novels. By the end of the workbook, I had a good list going of books to read and study.
Whether you are a new writer, or one that has been struggling for years, WRITING THE BREAKOUT NOVEL WORKBOOK, by DONALD MAASS is the book for you. Make it your next to purchase. You won’t regret it.
